I guess you need to keep chacking to see if anything is advertised with your eBay account. Also is it attached to a paypal account or anything if so you may need to check that.

Have you had an email purported from eBay recently asking you to login? If so this was how it was done.

I hope you didn't get one of those moody emails from eBay that tell you your account password needs to be changed ..... etc etc ...... then you log in and it's all a scam !! :o

Cancel all your bank details to PayPal and eBay now ! before it gets nasty ...........

What's your account name? Worth checking to see what you've allegedly got for sale, and warning off any bidders (or putting in killer £1,000,000 bids that aren't going to be paid!)

Killer bids can be sent from an account knocked up specifically for the purpose.
